Ingredients
  

  • 357 g Flour (2 3/4 cups)
  • 192 ml Slightly warm milk (not hot) (3/4 cup )+(1 tbsp)
  • 1 Egg
  • 50 g Butter (3 1/2 tbsp)
  • 1and 1/2 tsp Instant yeast 1 and 3/4 tsp if Active dry yeast
  • 2 tbsp Honey/Sugar
  • 1 tsp Salt

Instructions
 

PREPARE THE WHOLE WHEAT DINNER ROLL DOUGH

  • Into a bowl,lets add all our ingredients together and mix them to form a shaggy mass of dough.
    Add the milk,honey,yeast,egg,salt ,butter and flour and mix them together.
    Transfer the dough onto a clean work surface and knead the dough until the dough become soft and elastic.Only a well kneaded dough can produce soft and fluffy whole wheat buns .

DIVIDE AND SHAPE THE DOUGH

  • Once our whole wheat dinner roll dough is ready,divide the dough into 15 equal pieces.For more precision,I weighed each of them and they were 44-45 g in weight.
    Roll each piece of dough into small balls.Tuck in the edges towards the centre and roll the balls into small round balls.
    Place the rolls into a nonstick baking tray or on to parchment lined baking tray or on to a well greased baking tray.

PROOF THE WHOLE WHEAT DINNER ROLL DOUGH

  • Let the dough ball sit in a warm environment for about 60 minutes or until they puff up and get doubled in size.
    After an hour,brush the top of those rolls with an egg wash to make our rolls shiny and golden brown in colour when they are baked.
    Now they are ready to to go into the oven.

BAKE THE WHOLE WHEAT DINNER ROLLS

  • Bake the rolls in a 375 F preheated oven for 18-20 minutes.
